This workshop is right down the road! USING BENEFICIAL INSECTS IN HIGH TUNNELS
On April 20 at 10 am IPM Specialist Dr. Betsy Lamb will lead growers in this hands-on workshop at Kilpatrick Family Farm, 9778 Route 22 in Middle Granville NY (just a few miles west of Wells, VT). The use of beneficial insects as a means to control pest insects in high tunnels and greenhouses will be discussed. Understanding placement, handling and life cycles of the beneficial insects is just as important as understanding the pest insects. Microscopes and insects will be available. Additionally, Michael Kilpatrick will give a brief tour of the high and low tunnel production areas of his farm. Cost is $10 per person; make check payable to CCE Rensselaer County, and mail with your name and contact info to CCE Washington County, 415 Lower Main Street, Hudson Falls, NY 12839. Please register by April 15th. Call 518-746-2562 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
